  • "We had a lovely stay at the Brook Cottage."

    The owners left us a bottle of wine and fresh eggs fron the farm as a welcome treat. The cottage is a true gem, it’s spacious, cosy and has a beautiful garden at the back with a babbling brook. The fireplace was a big plus. The location is secluded and very idyllic, surrounded by the infinitely green rolling hills and is in close proximity to the coast and the walking paths. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay there and would like to return in the near future.

  • "Excellent as always"

    Mr CoeNov 2021

  • "The property is remotely located in beautiful countryside but initally somewhat challenging approach roads."

    However as the week progressed the travelling became more familiar and easier. The property was immaculately presented and extremely well equiped and very comfortable. The courtyard, brook and garden beyond were a delight, just a shame the weather didn't encourage their use. The owners and support staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Feeding the Alpacas and Chickens was great fun for the whole family. Highly recommend.

    Mr CrosbyOct 2021

  • "It was a lovely cottage, in a beautiful part of the Devon countryside."

    Peaceful, and relaxing with access to the coast via walks, or car and close to other places to visit. Nice and spacious cottage with a lovely sized garden. Great to see the free range chickens wandering, and also all the alpacas in the fields. Matt was very helpful, giving directions for walks, and letting us know he was there if needed, but not intrusive. Most roads were typical for the area, narrowish, but plenty of passing points, and no stress from other drivers. It is worth knowing that the location of the cottage does require travel down some very narrow single track roads, some cars may find them a challenge, we managed fairly well in my Nissan Juke. They do tell you one of the two possibles route in is only suited to 4x4 vehicles, which we avoided due the their advice.

  • "We had the most wonderful two week stay at Brook Cottage."

    It suited our needs perfectly (two children under 6; a grandparent and parents). The cottage was clean and spacious and had a well equipped kitchen. The site contacts were quick to respond and helpful if we had any queries. One of the team took his time with us feeding the alpacas and chickens (which was definitely a highlight for our children). There were lots of lovely and varied places to visit - beaches, towns, walks and other attractions to visit. We really did love our holiday and didn't want to leave!

  • "Brook cottage was the perfect holiday home for us."

    We enjoyed everything about our stay here and would happily return.

    Mr NorreyJun 2021

  • "Excellent accommodation with some great countryside, beaches etc around."

    Will come back. Be aware of very narrow lanes though (which you do learn to manage) plus side of that is peace and quiet plus wildlife

    Mr HarmanSep 2020

  • "We enjoyed our holiday at Brook Cottage very much."

    The farm is delightful and we enjoyed the peace and quiet enormously as well as watching the alpacas and free range chickens. The house is spacious, well equipped and very well maintained and a beautiful setting. We enjoyed walking to the coast path and Stoke beach which is really lovely, and saw many butterflies and birds throughout our stay as we were very fortunate with good weather on most days. Wembury was wonderful for rock pools. We arranged an Asda delivery which worked out really well and meant we didn't have to go shopping at all. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.

  • "Brook Cottage was as described, 5-star accommodation set in the beautiful countryside of South Devon."

    The directions provided by the owner were excellent and it wasn’t difficult to find, although some of the lanes to access it were quite small and, for us at least, it was a drive rather than walk to the beach, these were also easily located. Our favourite beach in the Hams is Bigbury on Sea which took us between 25-35 minutes but armed with a picnic and beach chairs/swimwear we spent two (different) days there. Parking is quite expensive (£12/day) but if you go equipped you don’t need to spend anything else other than ice creams. Mothecombe was lovely though at least a 5-minute walk down - if you’re not fit (and I am not!) then you can at the very least double that on the way back as the steep lanes were quite hard - if you’re fit (like my teenagers) then you won’t notice it so much. Hope Cove was another great visit and there are two or three lovely pubs serving food, a small car park and fantastic views and coastal walks. We were lucky with the weather and had a wonderful week away with the family, made all the more pleasant by returning to such a beautiful cottage. We will be back

    Mrs CooperAug 2019

  • "We had a fantastic time and the children absolutely adored the chickens and alpacas!"

    we even got to walk into their field when it was feeding time. Only criticism is the narrow roads but this is to be expected with its location.

The property

This smart cottage is located at the end of a row of cottages in a peaceful valley hamlet near the Coast Path, 1½ miles from Newton Ferrers.

With a split level layout and stylish décor, it is comfortable accommodation in a relaxing rural spot.

Step up through the front door into your kitchen which doubles beautifully as a sociable dining space.

Beside a glass balustrade, open tread stairs lead you down to the lofty sitting room with country-style wood burning stove and doors to open to the terrace.

The three comfortable bedrooms are spread across two levels, with an en suite twin on the ground floor and an en suite double and a twin with beams on the upper floor.

Family bathroom.

Your outdoor terrace has a table and chairs for sunny meals and if you head through a gate and over a little bridge across a stream you will discover an enclosed garden with a lawn sheltered by trees and tranquil views across meadows enjoyed by hens and alpacas.

If you would like to help feed the alpacas, there are opportunities sometimes and you can even buy an alpaca scarf as a souvenir.

Head to the waterside pubs in Newton Ferrers for lunch or supper, or Plymouth has excellent city eateries and entertainment.

Mothecombe beach, a beautiful bay which has starred in films such as International Velvet, is three miles from the cottage or take your nets and buckets to Wembury which has great rock pools and a conservation centre.

For walkers, you only need to join the South West Coast Path a mile away for lovely scenery and challenging hikes.

Brook Cottage is a lovely retreat for enjoying the South Hams.

About the location


Plymouth 8 miles.

A tranquil, picturesque village in the South Hams area of Devon, on a bend of the River Yealm leading up from the South Devon coast (1 mile). The perfect haven for sailors, for those who love messing about near water and for those who appreciate stunning and civilised countryside. There is a local butcher, chemist, post office and grocer in Newton Ferrers and an organic farm shop just two miles away. The village pub, with fantastic views across the water towards Noss Mayo and the creek, serves good food and drink. The area is blessed with many walks that meander along the waterside and across the fields, while to the north Dartmoor's high tors and open spaces beckon those who love wild country. The city of Plymouth with its shops, Marine Aquarium and Barbican quayside area is just 8 miles away while beautiful Totnes with its 'alternative' view on life is a must. If the beach rather than boats is what you seek, you won't do better than the beautiful sands at Mothecombe and Bigbury just a few miles down the road. Both are accessible by road or boat from Newton Ferrers. There are a number of excellent golf courses nearby.
